Cristante has signed a new deal; Pazzini and Petagna to follow…
Milan have extended teenager Bryan Cristante’s contract to June 2018. The midfielder, who turned 18 on Sunday, is currently part of the Italian club’s youth squad.
The new and improved contract means that Cristante will be promoted to the Milan first-team squad next season.
According to Tuttomercatoweb , Milan are also ready to offer Giampaolo Pazzini a new contract.
Pazzini’s present deal expires in 2015, but he will be offered a 12-month extension as a reward to recent efforts. However, no changes will be made to his €2.7 million per season salary.
In addition, the same source claims that youngster Andrea Petagna is expected to join the 28-year-old former Inter striker and Italy Under-21 captain in being awarded an improved contract.
Pazzini scored twice in win over Lazio, while Cristante was honored a “Golden Boy” at the Viareggio youth tournament.
